Weekend Reading 19: Loulou de la Falaise

Loulou de la Falaise's death was announced today by the Pierre Bergé Yves Saint Laurent Fondation.

"My home is like a gypsy as it has a lot of color and generosity.  I want to make people feel happy and surprised but at the same time it has to be beautiful."  Loulou de la Falaise

In 2007 Falaise created a line of jewelry and objects for the home called 'Loulou de la Falaise Fantasie'.  "Each piece is a fantasy - but things shouldn't be serious, but fun and enhancing," said Falaise.

"Anything I've ever had a really good time in, I would never give away."

"When I shop, I try things on and then look at the label."

'As a designer as well as a small business owner, Loulou del la Falaise has finally abandoned the last vestiges of her fabled role as Yves Saint Laurent's muse.  "I'm looking for one myself" she said.  The New York Times
